Prader leaps to new heights

Despite losses from the Cal Poly track and field team on both the men’s and women’s sides to UC Santa Barbara, Saturday’s performances yielded some positive results in its last dual meet of the season — most notably John Prader’s recording-breaking leap in the pole vault — as the team prepares to partake in the 2013 Big West Conference Championships.
